WASP is a standalone unit providing a bridge for ANT+ devices to communicate wirelessly through Wi-Fi networks to other devices or over the Internet. Integrating an NPE WiFi-IT! module, 8-channel ANT+ receiver, power management circuitry and rechargeable Li-Ion battery, WASP provides a data gateway for monitoring, recording and analyzing ANT+ data remotely.
WASP receives data from connected ANT+ devices and translates the data into Wi-Fi packets, making it available to any Wi-Fi connected device. For example, ANT+ home scales, pulse-oximeter monitors, and blood glucose monitors are all able to use this bridge module to communicate their data to central monitoring stations via a Wi-Fi network.
WASP is also usable as a bridge between multiple ANT+ nodes in distributed ANT+ network topologies. Since ANT+ is a personal area network, it has a typical range of approximately two meters. If the ANT+ network is used as a mesh or hub and spoke topology, WASP can join networks together that would normally not be able to communicate with each other because of range limitations.
The WASP Application Programmers Interface is an open API that is used by developers to integrate WASP into ANT+ applications.
